I agree, Mountain Creek (formerly Vernon Valley), in Vernon, NJ is very close. From Long Island, around 1.5hrs. Always been a bit crowded for my taste. I also ski Hunter, Belleayre, Wyndham, and even Eagle Rock in PA like the other poster.
Of all regional parks, I'd choose Camelback in Tannersville, PA without hesitation. A straight shot across the George Washington puts you on I-80 west. A two hour drive from Nassau, you're there. Great park, great variety, friendly staff. Plenty of snowboarding options and terrain there.
